The legal team at Thursfields Solicitors’ Birmingham office has grown by 40 per cent so far this year as the company’s Commercial Advisory Team continues to expand.

The newest recruits include Fiona Boxwell, who has over 30 years’ experience, appointed as corporate associate director, and Pam Virdee, who has joined as a commercial property solicitor from Pickerings in Tamworth.

Other newcomers include Wendy Tsang, a wills and estates solicitor brought in to assist senior associate solicitor Laura Banks, who specialises in assisting business owners with Trusts, wealth management and financial planning.

Stuart Price, director of the Commercial team at Thursfields’ offices in Snowhill, said: “We are continuing to strengthen our commercial advisory team so that we can improve the breadth of our services to business owners in the region.

“We have seen a 40 per cent increase so far this year to what is now a top team of lawyers in our Birmingham office, reflecting the growth volumes of corporate and commercial work in recent months.

We are delighted at the qualities of our most recent recruits who are bringing all their knowledge and experience to our expanding business.

It says something about the growing reputation of Thursfields that we are able to attract lawyers of such quality and experience.”

Mr. Price added: “As our business continues to grow in this year we will be looking to recruit even more senior staff so that Thursfields always has the best skills to tackle new jobs.”
